Lincoln County native, Jon Matthews, is raising money for his first feature film. The movie’s called, Unlovable. It’s an indie drama about a young woman—-who received HIV from a childhood blood transfusion—-that falls in love for the first time. The film will be shot entirely in West Virginia, during peak fall foliage season. And it will showcase some of the most beautiful locations in the state. Like Kanawha Falls, the Glen Ferris Inn, the New River Gorge Bridge, Babcock State Park, and historic downtown Charleston.
Jon is trying to raise $25,000 via Kickstarter, an internet fundraising site. If he doesn’t raise the entire amount by May 12th, he doesn’t get a penny of the proceeds. So, check out his website and donate a buck or two, if you can. http://www.kickstarter.

This will come as great news to the ramp connoisseur that have been waiting patiently on this years crop to be ready for harvest. They are ready!
(They are still small, tender, and extra pungent right now. If you would prefer the large leafy ones, you should wait until the week of April 15th to place your order.)
Better late than never!

I found this gem on the internet today. Go ahead and have a look, I’ll wait.
Looks tough huh?
It seems like they weren’t so much teaching an overview of the material as I was accustomed to in school, but rather they were making sure students really understood and had a much deeper grasp of the material. I could be a little off on my time line but even in 1931 a good deal of students probably never went any further then the 8th grade (especially in rural areas) and that education had to serve them the rest of their lives.
A couple of things that really stand out to me are there is no BS multiple choice and insultingly easy questions that I remember from school. It seems you were expected to know your shit and you were going to prove it or fail.
So what do you think? Could you pass it?
